Pros: Characters take you down memory lane., Tennis matches aren't terrible., Wii controls are spot on.
Cons: Graphics could be better., Some songs are awful., Game could use better design throughout.

Summary: After Sonic's recent lackluster performance in Mario & Sonic at the Olympic Games, you'd be forgiven for having low expectations for Sega's next sports game to feature mascots: Sega Superstars Tennis.
Pros: Characters, courts, and music based on classic Sega games, Many minigames combine tennis with the gameplay of another game, More than 100 different challenges
Cons: Actual tennis is pretty average, Some levels use their source material much better than others, Many of the characters are D-listers
Conclusion: Overall, Sega Superstars Tennis offers a nice pick up and play tennis game similar to the likes of Mario tennis and while you wait for a new installment of Mario Tennis on the Wii, this one should do for now.
